Extended Warranty

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Mine coming up to 3 years in May. Had letter from BMW about extending warranty. Not sure what to do. Quote looks reasonable you can reduce with £100 and £250 excess. Anyone else thinking about this. My car has only done. 4000 miles.

I expect my letter in the next month or two. What is the full cost breakdown ?

With £250 excess comes out at reasonable £357 inc emergency cover. Mine is low mileage

Did the comprehensive extended warranty and breakdown cover today. £357 with £250 excess. Good value.

It seems like the extended warranty in UK is very reasonable.

I went to the dealership in Canada today, and they quoted me 6 years or 200000km for $5899 Cdn!!!

Seriously thats only 2 years extra for 6K!!!!!!!!!!

I would definitely go for it if it was that cheap here.

I checked with my dealer when I bought the car - AUD$7700 for 3 extra years (6 total).

Thanks for the info guys.

Mine will be due in a couple of months so I guess I'll be expecting one of these letters.

Negotiate it down.
I got the extra 3 years for $3800 AUS.

Wow I would've done it for that price. I tried and he said $7,200.. I laughed.
It's not too late though, I have up until the last day of warranty. Thanks for the heads up.

That was 2 years ago, and I am pretty sure that the dealers cost price was roughly about $3400 at the time.

Might have gone up since then.

Any one have a good contact in the USA for extended warranty and maintence? Would prefer to work with someone who isnt clueless to what a 1M is.
